Peggy KolarPeggy Kolar is the director of the Early Learning Center. As a member of Congregation Beth Shalom whose two children went through the ELC program, she knows how important a child’s preschool experience can be. As a result, after her two “honey bears” began going to school full-time, she returned to the ELC as a teacher. She began as assistant teacher in the Honey Bears program before moving into her current position as lead teacher and director. Miss Peggy has a degree in K-9 education from Northern Illinois University and she has taken numerous supplemental classes focused on early childhood education.

Peggy lives in Naperville with her husband, two kids, and two dogs. She is a volunteer at the Naperville Area Humane Society which is a great outlet for her love of animals. Through the years she has been an active volunteer at her children’s schools. ┬áMost importantly, she loves watching the miraculous transformation of children throughout their preschool years.
